Community Update

by Patrick Milos, community Development Director

“IMAGINE 2040”

CATHEDRAL CITY’S GENERAL PLAN UPDATE

Imagine what Cathedral City will look and feel like in the year 2040 – just over 20 years from now. What are the possibilities, opportunities and advancements that you would like to see?  How can the City become even more livable and attractive to residents and businesses?

City Council identified the need to comprehensively look at the City’s future at their strategic goal setting meeting.  Specifically, how should the city look in terms of commercial development, housing, open space, traffic circulation and pedestrian pathways?  In response to Council’s directive, City staff has begun the process of updating the City’s General Plan. 

What is a General Plan and why update it?  A General Plan is the primary land use tool used by cities to guide overall building activities.  The Plan is required by State law and includes goals, policies, and programs that the city uses to make land use decisions.  Cathedral City adopted its current General Plan in July 2002.  It was amended in 2009 when land in the north city area was annexed into Cathedral City.  State regulations require general plans to be updated approximately every 10 years. 

This update will look to the future of Cathedral City and where the City is headed on its way to the year 2040 – “Imagine 2040.”  We want to hear your vision for the community.  Come be part of Cathedral City’s plan for the future.

Each Tuesday evening in May (except May 29) between 5:00pm and 7:00pm, the City will host a public workshop at various locations throughout the City.  Come to one or come to all!  Share your vision or just join in on the fun of listening to your neighbors’ ideas.  Refreshments will be served. 

For workshop dates and locations, please see the flyer below.  You may also contact Leisa Lukes at (760) 770-0386 or by e-mail at llukes@cathedrlacity.gov for additional information.
